Goldenstar (Chrysogonum virginianum var. australe)
Genus:  Chrysogonum
From May to October, this perennial bears bright yellow, daisylike flowers on leafy stalks. It spreads by rooting runners to form an attractive groundcover that is easily controlled. This variety differs from the species in its more prostrate form and its more rapid spread.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Evergreen in areas with mild winters. Grow in woodland gardens, native plant gardens, or naturalized areas. Makes a good edge for woodland paths. Remove spent flowers for best appearance. May self-seed.
Care:  Easy to grow in medium-wet, well-drained soils. Prefers moist, rich, organic soils.
Propagation:  Sow seed in containers in a cold frame. Divide or separate runners in spring or autumn.
Problems:  Infrequent, but may be susceptible to mildew.
